Google average share trading bigger than Micoshaft Corporation.
Average $1.6 billion worth of shares trade in Google every day.
Micoshaft just around $1.5 billion.
There is no need to follow or adopt micoshaft crap products.
Manufacturers should follow Google (a Linux company), Android
and Chrome because micoshaft is not big in comparison.
Everything micoshaft has against you is smoke, mirrors and vapor.
There are bigger things happening now in IT than micoshaft.
